This was a design project I did for Danny Choo.
I adjusted the original colour palettes to mute them a bit, to give more breathing room to the eyes when looking at the design. Used various brushes, most of which I have the license to use. Ah, there's a brush that only needed a linkback when used (here's the source: http://niicedreems.deviantart.com/art/Sakura-Brush-Set-03-47304094).
Design made using an umbrella scaffolding and character render from Danny Choo.
